Happy Thanksgiving

Author: 

Hi everyone the title says it all, Happy Turkey day to all who celebrate it. Living this side of the pond they don't celebrate it here. But we do as a family although I'm the lone American here. But like I tell our kids they are half American and should honor their family roots. So have a wonderful fun-filled day with your family.

I think I have only mentioned this to a couple of people at Big Closet. But I'm deaf which is a challenge I use Amerivan Sign Language (ASL).I live in a foreign Country as well. My complaint or grouse is that people do not speak to me. They talk over me to my husband it's like I don't exist to them. What makes it worse is when he does the same. Although I have to say in his defense he's trying to protect me.

Bikini beach story The Russian Connection

Hi well finally completed the first part. I had the help of a very patient editor and proofreader this time.This time the story is a little longer but does flow a lot better. I'm sure that there are still some errors there. Please let me know what you think.

The title is as above.

Help!

I need to have my story removed from the B.B universe page. It seems the story is OK but there are a lot of grammar and punctuation errors in it. OK to be honest way too many of said errors. I now have a proofreader who has offered to help me correct the errors. Being dyslexic, I should have thought of this before. Karl, my husband, complimented me in both writing it and finding a site where I would get so much support.

It took much longer than I first realized.

Some time back I posted to say. I had bikini beach a story that I wanted to post. Since that time I've contacted ElrodW. Who has been a great help to me in developing it. After reading thrugh it and carrying out some editing. I left it a while and read thrugh and edited a little more. Finally I'm going to publish it either tomorrow or Saturday. Being dyslexic I'm sure there will be some errors. But that being said I guessnow it's stand or fall.

Yorkshire Pudding failure.

I thought that I'd try a typical British Sunday lunch. It was supposed to impress my English in laws. Simple right? Nope I can tell you it never went to plan. I got a great beef joint. That at least came out the oven right. My roast potatoes were passable I guess. The gravy was pretty good but not much can go wrong there. However, the Yorkshire pudding was more like a pancake. Chloe, our eldest just looked and said just do what you're good at in future Mom. Kate, my Mom in law brought over a trifle. Next time it'll be meatloaf. We'll dine American fare lol.

So much drama!

It seems that everywhere I turn there is drama. Pretty much all my family are Republicans. A couple are pretty much centralists. Even our so called new President is nothing but a drama queen. Thanks a lot for turning the Country I love into a joke Donny J. Let's be honest Donny J Trumphas to be the biggest drama queen of all. Then there is my eldest daughter. She's seven going on twenty seven, like most kids her age I guess. That kid is so much like me it scares the crap out of me. My Mom once said to me, you know Cheryl now I know that God is just. On asking what she meant she replied.

OH MY GOSH!

I have just seen some amazing satire. Alec Baldwin was incredible as Trump. But I have to say Melissa McCarthy was even better as Sean Spicer. Despite being a proud, true blue Republican. Why the hell did we let Trump get this far? I'm betting that if Mr. Trump is watching it. Saturday Night Live (SNL) must really be getting to him. Please note I said Mr. Trump as he's not my President. I just hope it continues but, that being said. With that idiot in the White House they will never run out of material.

I hope everyone had a good Christmas. I also would like to wish you all a Happy New Year. We had a very different Christmas this year. Instead of spending it at home; we went to my in laws. I'm not complaining. I love my in laws. As much as I love my own parents. My only grumble about living in the UK is that I miss the snow. Hey I'm a Boston girl we're experts on snow lol. The kids had a great time especially as they were on the floor in sleeping bags. Well the older ones were the baby was in his mobile crib aka Moses basket.

An Embarrassing Experience

I know it's only a couple of days since my last post/blog. But my daughter (Eldest) should avoid me if she wants to see Christmas. We had a parent-teacher meeting at school. Generally she's really doing pretty well in school. She reads well and considering she was held back a year I'm proud of her. Due to the time of her birthday and the UK education system. While in her first school she had to repeat her last year. Her teacher at that school was amazing and he kept her busy. Helping any class members who were struggling.

Great!

Great! I think that I've had about the worst day of my life. Karen, my young sister in law visited this afternoon. I have to tell you that I love this girl to death. But certain situations, cause and effect created a bad afternoon. Let me explain something first. My twin girls are three years old and are in the last stages of potty training. What that means is that we still have more accidents than I like. My youngest is still in diapers. The twins are now wearing pull-ups and on the whole, that sets the scene.

I couldn't really see a niche for this. But I'm not sure about most people. But, I'll be pleased when this is all over. Luckily living in the UK I've not had the same problem as most of my Countrymen. My Mother-In-Law bless her, I so love that lady. Said well thankfully it doesn't really concern us meaning Brits. But like I said well as our closest ally, I don't care what anyone thinks, we are close allies. It means a great deal to the UK who wins.

Feeling kinda anxious

I'm not sure how, what, when or even if this will happen but I hope it will. I guess like most if not all on this site I love writing stories. I've written a few bedtime stories for my kids probably pretty much like all parents. My eldest son was my biggest challenge and is pretty much the reason that I did this. You see he hated sad endings so when I told stories like the three little pigs I had to invent a happy ending for him. So, I guess it all went from there really.

How can people be so cruel?

We were visiting my husband's family in London. We decided to use public transport due to the fact that he hates to drive in London and I'm still not happy about driving on the wrong side of the road lol. It was while we were on the tube (subway) and Benjamin our youngest woke up. I was hoping to get to my in laws first we were about twenty minutes away. This meant that I had to discretely as possible breast feed him on the tube train. I was doing this pretty well until some guy started to object to it and he made me feel so bad and dirty about doing something natural.

Merry Christmas to all

Hi everyone to be totally politically incorrect I'd like to wish you all a very merry Christmas. Stuff the happy holiday theme I was raised in a conservative home and I'm proud of that. It's not rocket science to know that we're living in very troubled times. So no matter what your personal beliefs are I wish everyone a very happy and peaceful Christmas. And also a very prosperous and successful new year.

Bikini Beach Story

I'm about three quarters of the way through a Bikini Beach story I know it's Elrods universe, his creation. But I do have a few questions which I guess is all about etiquette and protocol really.
First of all am I right in thinking that it would only be right for me to send him the story first? Although from my understanding Ellie Dauber is another I could send it too first.
Second if either of them are OK with the story how would I go about finding an editor or would they do that as well.
